Phallic Friday - prostitution

I could not let this news article slip by without bringing it to your attention. It's a gem.

Here's the link

The world's oldest prostitutes are twins, aged 71, living in Amsterdam, who retired last year. They say they've slept with more than 335 000 men over half a century of work.

Do you reckon that's 335 000 individuals? Or it's an estimate of the number of jobs they've had? Because that's a heck of a lot of individuals! And assuming some visit more than once, a lot of work!

They entered into prostitution in their 20s to escape from violent relationships.

Quite a few prostitutes seem to start in the business after that sort of a relationship (well, from the articles I've read anyway). I guess it gives control, and protection, during sex.

I've always had a fascination with prostitution. A couple of times in my life when I've needed money, I've contemplated the work, but I'm not sure I'm tolerant enough. I'm not cut out for retail, people and their demands drive me bats, so I think prostitution and I are probably not the best fit. I have considered phone sex as an employment strategy...but there's a heck of a lot of hurdles to jump through to set up that sort of business!

Anyway, back to the story - the twins say the best way to keep a man happy is to know what they want.

And I think that's excellent advice. The men I've enjoyed being with the most are men who I've known what they want, I know what they like, and it's been a blast. The men who I just don't really hit it off with, are those who I've no idea what they like/want...and when I ask, they don't know either. It's not so easy to have good sex when they have no idea what good sex is.

I was hoping they'd share more secrets!

They have a book out, The Ladies of Amsterdam, so maybe the secrets are in the book. I might have to buy it and see what it says. Do you reckon it's a tax deduction? Research?


  1. Try it on your tax agent. Let me know what he/she says!

    1. I don't have a tax agent, I have a Mr E and I can tell you right now he'd be appalled that I wanted to claim such a thing!
